Prophecies Against the Kings of Judah

22Thus saith the LORD; Go down to the house of the king of Judah, and speak there this word,H559H3068H3381H1004H4428H3063H1696H1697 2And say, Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, that sittest upon the throne of David, thou, and thy servants, and thy people that enter in by these gates:H559H8085H1697H3068H4428H3063H3427H3678H1732H5650H5971H935H8179 3Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place.H559H3068H6213H4941H6666H5337H1497H3027H6216H3238H2554H1616H3490H490H8210H5355H1818H4725 4For if ye do this thing indeed, then shall there enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting upon the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, he, and his servants, and his people.H6213H1697H6213H935H8179H1004H4428H3427H3678H1732H7392H7393H5483H5650H5971 5But if ye will not hear these words, I swear by myself, saith the LORD, that this house shall become a desolation.H8085H1697H7650H5002H3068H1004H2723 6For thus saith the LORD unto the king's house of Judah; Thou art Gilead unto me, and the head of Lebanon: yet surely I will make thee a wilderness, and cities which are not inhabited.H559H3068H4428H1004H3063H1568H7218H3844H7896H4057H5892H3427H3427 7And I will prepare destroyers against thee, every one with his weapons: and they shall cut down thy choice cedars, and cast them into the fire.H6942H7843H376H3627H3772H4005H730H5307H784 8And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall say every man to his neighbour, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this great city?H7227H1471H5674H5892H559H376H7453H3068H6213H1419H5892 9Then they shall answer, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God, and worshipped other gods, and served them.H559H5800H1285H3068H430H7812H312H430H5647 10Weep ye not for the dead, neither bemoan him: but weep sore for him that goeth away: for he shall return no more, nor see his native country.H1058H4191H5110H1058H1058H1980H7725H7200H4138H776

Message to the Sons of Josiah

11For thus saith the LORD touching Shallum the son of Josiah king of Judah, which reigned instead of Josiah his father, which went forth out of this place; He shall not return thither any more:H559H3068H413H7967H1121H2977H4428H3063H4427H2977H1H3318H4725H7725 12But he shall die in the place whither they have led him captive, and shall see this land no more.H4191H4725H1540H7200H776 13Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbour's service without wages, and giveth him not for his work;H1945H1129H1004H3808H6664H5944H4941H7453H5647H2600H5414H6467 14That saith, I will build me a wide house and large chambers, and cutteth him out windows; and it is cieled with cedar, and painted with vermilion.H559H1129H4060H1004H7304H5944H7167H2474H5603H730H4886H8350 15Shalt thou reign, because thou closest thyself in cedar? did not thy father eat and drink, and do judgment and justice, and then it was well with him?H4427H8474H730H1H398H8354H6213H4941H6666H2896 16He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well with him: was not this to know me? saith the LORD.H1777H1779H6041H34H2896H1847H5002H3068 17But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it.H5869H3820H1215H8210H5355H1818H6233H4835H6213 18Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah; They shall not lament for him, saying, Ah my brother! or, Ah sister! they shall not lament for him, saying, Ah lord! or, Ah his glory!H559H3068H3079H1121H2977H4428H3063H5594H1945H251H1945H269H5594H1945H113H1945H1935 19He shall be buried with the burial of an ass, drawn and cast forth beyond the gates of Jerusalem.H6912H6900H2543H5498H7993H1973H8179H3389 20Go up to Lebanon, and cry; and lift up thy voice in Bashan, and cry from the passages: for all thy lovers are destroyed.H5927H3844H6817H5414H6963H1316H6817H5676H157H7665 21I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice.H1696H7962H559H8085H1870H5271H8085H6963 22The wind shall eat up all thy pastors, and thy lovers shall go into captivity: surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded for all thy wickedness.H7307H7462H7462H157H3212H7628H954H3637H7451 23O inhabitant of Lebanon, that makest thy nest in the cedars, how gracious shalt thou be when pangs come upon thee, the pain as of a woman in travail!H3427H3844H7077H730H2603H2256H935H2427H3205

Message to Coniah

24As I live, saith the LORD, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah were the signet upon my right hand, yet would I pluck thee thence;H2416H5002H3068H3659H1121H3079H4428H3063H2368H3225H3027H5423 25And I will give thee into the hand of them that seek thy life, and into the hand of them whose face thou fearest, even into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of the Chaldeans.H5414H3027H1245H5315H3027H6440H3016H3027H5019H4428H894H3027H3778 26And I will cast thee out, and thy mother that bare thee, into another country, where ye were not born; and there shall ye die.H2904H517H3205H312H776H3205H4191 27But to the land whereunto they desire to return, thither shall they not return.H776H5375H5315H7725H7725 28Is this man Coniah a despised broken idol? is he a vessel wherein is no pleasure? wherefore are they cast out, he and his seed, and are cast into a land which they know not?H376H3659H959H5310H6089H3627H2656H7993H2233H2904H776H3045 29O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.H776H776H776H8085H1697H3068 30Thus saith the LORD, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah.H559H3068H3789H376H6185H1397H6743H3117H376H2233H6743H3427H3678H1732H4910H3063
